    nice dividend payout comin here on Feb 4th $.89 dividend... WOW!!

    "only times these get hurt is when interest rates rise"

    Ha Ha. Clearly hasn't been around MLPs for long if he's not aware of how these got killed in 2008-9 and more recently in August 2011 during the S&P downgrade and debt ceiling debacle.

    As far as comparing to other MLPs, ETP has been a laggard for years, underperforming the MLP index by a significant margin. Some people expect to perform better in future but it's been one of the dogs of the sector for several years. If this is your only one, I'd say you could do a lot better.
